I’ll be checking the mail today for my free plane tickets and hotel reservation for Vegas, because with the way I’m picking bowl games this year, I would be a sports book’s best friend. If you read yesterday’s bowl prediction post, you’ll know that I picked Georgia to win the game over A&M. Only problem? I picked them to win a close game. Not by like, you know, 700 points. So, my bowl picking ineptitude continues. I stand at 0-for-1 on my second-chance Big 12 picks. I’m not giving up hope of running the table. Although, the debacle at Texas Tech certainly doesn’t improve my chances of the Red Raiders covering the spread in the Alamo Bowl. Oh well.
In beer news, if you’re still looking for something to do New Year’s Eve, the Prohibition Room is offering an open bar and hors d’oeuvres special for $60. Yes, that’s right, I said open bar. Pretty crazy. If you’ve never been to the Prohibition Room, they have a very nice selection of local beer on tap.
Also, COOP Ale Works has announced an open house at the brewery at 7 p.m. Jan. 9. Tours, music and samples will be on tap. All are invited.
